Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has become an important resource of child-rearing. More and more new parents are reported to adopt online platforms to seek parental support. Multiple researchers have reported positive effects of interventions in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) adopting ICT. Nevertheless, a review about the articulation of ICT use in parenting for children aged 3-12 years old with ADHD is currently lacking. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate how ICT promotes the interventions of ADHD children in early childhood. ICT can facilitate parenting. Especially videoconferencing-related ICT interventions were considered as both more effective and accessible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides remote interventions, ICT can also be used for moment-to-moment measurement of interactions between parents and children. It was reported that the ICT also successfully facilitated interactions between parents and children with ADHD. Key factors that affect the effectiveness of ICT interventions were concluded in this paper, which are program intensity, program completion, level of severity in ADHD, and parental self-efficacy respectively. Direct use of ICT interventions in ADHD children and parental support can be implemented jointly to maximize the treatment outcomes, especially in improving children’s working memory performance. Implications of ICT interventions in ADHD were also provided for parents and researchers accordingly. Future research could further explore the long-term effect of ICT interventions for children with ADHD. This understanding might contribute to the design of the forthcoming online parenting resources and interventions for ADHD.
